Blue Panel

 Madison, New Jersey, USA

Blue Panel is a band out of Madison, NJ, that is passionate about playing rock and roll and spreading the love of good music when it can be hard to come by. The band combines old-school roots with new grunge and alternative elements; a refreshing sound that the music industry has been waiting for.


The Panel was formed in the summer of 2009, when singer and lead guitarist Nick Malishchak and bassist Andrew McCloskey decided to record some of their songs at 7th Wave studios. After the self-titled 8-track album was finished they decided to form a full band, recruiting Matt Amling on rhythm guitar and Eli Raymond on drums.
Following much practicing and fine-tuning, the band played their first show in 2010 at the Crossroads in Garwood, NJ. Since then, they have been playing shows in and around New Jersey and New York City- including such venues as the Starland Ballroom, Webster Hall, The Stone Pony, The Croc Rock, and many other locations.
Each member of the group brings their own creative and musical style to the table, which can definitely be heard in their music. Major influences for Blue Panel’s style include the Rolling Stones, the Raconteurs, the Foo Fighters, John Butler Trio, the Kooks, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Dispatch. This wide range of artists inspires The Panel's distinct sound, a fusion of classic rock and in-your-face alternative.
Blue Panel’s first EP containing the current lineup of members, “Feedback”, was released in the summer of 2010, containing 6 all new original songs. They continue to work on writing and creating new works to expand their fan base and reach ears everywhere.
